Coming on June 14th is Roger Daltrey’s live album, The Who’s Tommy Orchestral. The new set was recorded in Budapest and Bethel in upstate New York — the scene of the first Woodstock festival 50 years ago, where the band performed Tommy in its entirety.
In the press release for the album, Daltrey said, “Pete (Townshend)’s music is particularly suited to being embellished by the sounds that an orchestra can add to the band. Tommy can mean whatever you want it to mean, I use the characters in it as metaphors for parts of the human condition, so it’s a kind of a story of the human spirit. Even though it is 50 years on, I approach it as though I’m singing it for the first time.”
